About Us

Founded in 2012, RPM was born out of the idea that legit, purposeful functional training is the foundation for a truly full and adventurous life. When you put in that work, it pushes you to do more, explore further, surf longer, ride harder... It's a barrier against injury, apathy, and even time itself. This connection is why our brand will always reflect the action, adventure, and creativity emboldened by the time we spend training, and not just the training itself. This purpose-first approach has been sorely missing from the traditional "fitness" brand landscape, but it permeates everything we do at RPM, and everything we make. #GroundedByPurpose
